The only time I use HE is on something I can only track, or on really light armor. The AP with a gun rammer is the way to go.
oh yeah and I went with the Jackson, I end up being to close to the action

The M1A2 is the gun to have for the Wolverine. It's the same gun the Easy 8 and Jumbo get, but at tier 5 and is more accurate. The rate of fire is absolutely wicked. You might wish for derp levels of damage, but the 105mm doesn't have a real place on the Wolverine, and its severe lack of accuracy and RoF makes it a poorer choice.

As for the Jackson or the Hellcat? The Jackson shares a ton with the Wolverine, so technically you're better equipped to tackle the Jackson. I however, was spoiled, because I had already gotten the Sherman and the radio and engine are a direct carry over. Haven't looked back since.

I am still flopping back and forth on the guns. In the beginning I favored the 105. I did not have full camo on my crew or Sixth Sense on my commander. I was spotted a lot. The 105 (especially pre-nerf) allowed me to pop up, remove 250 or 300 health from even a KV, and then pull back to cover. The M1A2 required I fire more often. I would get spotted and then 1 or 2 shotted. After I had full camo and 6th Sense, I could remain unlit and fire the M1A2 until lit and then I would scoot.  I could do more damage per game with the M1A2 than I could with the 105.

I moved the Wolverine crew to my Hellcat and began working on a new crew for the Wolverine. The new crew has almost 100% camo. I still use the M1A2 mainly, but I do use the 105 when I feel nostalgic or a platoon mate wants to use his.

About the only time I miss the 105 is when I get out of position on a T1 or KV-1. A couple of HEAT rounds placed on weak spots would have put me right again.

I use 76mm at gun m1a2  ammo AP 43 SHELLS,6 COMPOSITE RIGID HVAP M93 and 5 high explosive M48 shells every match..useually I start of loading the composite rigid shell hit my target with it first dealing some nice pen and damage and then have the next round to be loaded AP on stand by for my next blast and it works perfect,using that strag. I can kill 3 to 4 people by the end of the match with some nice damage done,but I also have my tank fully upgraded to everything and im going for the Jackson bc there excellent tanks and they deal some nice damage if you use it right,its got decent armor and the higher tiers that are gonna be after it are gonna be really good and big damage dealers rather than going down the hellcat line,BUT the hellcat is a good tank once you get use to it but my advice ro you is get the Jackson first keep the wolverine like im gonna do and then grind it again for the hell cat and work both those lines,im more of a TD guy though so its easier for me to grind down the td lines but best of luck in your choice and decision :) o7 1RAD
